Archaeology of the Burren: Prehistoric Forts and Dolmens in North Clare Book Cover
Archaeology of the Burren:
Prehistoric Forts and Dolmens in North Clare by T.J. Westropp

Archaeology Ireland, Autumn 1999

The densest concentration of wedge tombs is on the Burren in County Clare, and this, along with the density of other types of archaeological sites of a range of dates, including stone forts of early medieval date, is part of what makes the Burren such a very special landscape.  Thomas Johnson Westropp (1860-1922) was the great pioneer in the survey and publication of the archaeology of the Burren (as well as of other areas). Archaeology of the Burren: prehistoric forts and dolmens in North Clare by T.J. Westropp (CLASP Press, £27.00, hardback) is a very welcome compilation of articles on the Burren which originally appeared in The Journal of the Royal Society of Antiquaries of Ireland between 1895 and 1915.
